Michelle Malkin: PolitiFact to “debunk” my Gwen Moore/abortion post

Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin blasts PolitiFact for its plan to fact check the title of one of her blog post headlines, among other things.

As usual, I have a favorite part:
Matthew Hoy points to this statement from PolitiFact editor Bill Adair posted yesterday:
“We don’t check opinions, and we recognize that in the world of speechmaking and political rhetoric, there is license for hyperbole.”

Um, Bill Adair, meet your employee, Lou Jacobson.
Malkin posted her e-mail interaction with Jacobson.  Good stuff well worth the read, and good to see Matthew Hoy get a shout.
